DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which blocks email addresses from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is achieved by attaching an e-signature to each and every message sent from an email address under a certain domain. The signature is generated on the basis of a private key that’s available on the sending server and it can be validated with a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any message with edited content or a forged sender can be recognized by email providers. This method will boost your online security dramatically and you’ll be sure that any e-mail sent from a business partner, a banking institution, and so on, is legitimate. When you send out email messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be counterfeit may either be labeled as such or may never end up in the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to handle such emails.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Hosting

You’ll be able to get the most out of DomainKeys Identified Mail with each shared hosting that we are offering without having to do anything in particular, because the necessary records for using this email authentication system are created automatically by our website hosting platform when you add a domain name to an existing hosting account through the Hepsia Control Panel. If the domain name in question uses our NS records, a private cryptographic key will be issued and stored on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the DNS system. In case you send regular email messages to clients or business associates, they’ll always be delivered and no unauthorized individual will be able to forge your email address and make it look like you’ve composed a given message.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

The DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality is offered by default with any domain that’s registered through a semi-dedicated server account with our company. The domain should also use our name servers, so that its DNS resource records are handled by our platform. The latter makes it possible for a special TXT resource record to be created, which is actually the public cryptographic key that verifies if a certain email message is legitimate or not. Such a record is set up once a domain is added to an account through the Hepsia Control Panel and at the same time, a private key is generated on our email servers. If you make use of our email and web hosting services, your email messages will always reach their target readers and you will not need to worry about unsolicited individuals forging your addresses for scamming or spamming purposes, which is essential in case you use emails to get in touch with your business partners.
